O'Connor-Stanford residency program wins award
The O'Connor Stanford Leaders in Education Residency Program has received the 2014 National Innovative Program Award from the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine.
The program — a joint initiative of the O'Connor Family Medicine Residency Program, in San Jose, and the School of Medicine — gives family medicine residents at O'Connor Hospital the opportunity to develop leadership skills in medical education.
In addition, Stanford medical students benefit from teaching and mentorship by the residents. By teaching alongside master clinician-educators at the School of Medicine, O'Connor residents in the program complete a curriculum that mirrors many elements of a faculty development fellowship during residency.
Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and health care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics), and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
